She created the right atmosphere in the “jungle camp”. Cecilia Asoro was certainly one of the most entertaining contestants in this year’s I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here season. And not just because of her constant trouble with Tessa Bergmeier.
We spoke to the eliminated “Jungle Camp” candidate shortly after her selection. Cecilia Asoro on the jungle adventure, her favorites and the trouble with Tessa.
Dear Cecilia, what is more important – the joy of having survived or the sadness of not having made it to the end?
I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t sad to be out just before the finals. The calls were not enough, I have to accept that. But I’m really happy that I was able to experience that.
How do you rate your performance?
I am very proud that I was who I am. Of course I’ve heard a lot, for example that some things weren’t shown and you couldn’t see one side of me, but that’s not in my hands. All in all, I was quite satisfied, also with how I mastered the exams.
Did you think in advance how it will be in the camp?
Of course I’ve been thinking about how it’s going to be. But believe me: No matter how much thought you put into it, something is always added. What you experience there is really crass, violent and goes to your substance. But I did it and I’m proud of it.
Was there a moment that particularly shocked you?
In fact, the first few days. The deprivation of food, sugar and salt. I had been warned, but believe me – that was intense. My body went completely crazy. I couldn’t concentrate, I couldn’t remember what had happened fifteen minutes ago. That was really intense. But it was also cool. I just did a complete cure and that was good for my body too.
But you’re not sticking to beans and rice now?
No! I love rice, but I don’t want to see him for the next few days. Not beans anyway. I’ve already eaten a burger and I notice that my stomach is making noises. He’s really happy. Finally dirty things in my stomach again (laughs).
There were also noises between you and Tessa. Have you been able to pronounce yourself yet?
We saw each other straight away, we said hello from afar, but I think we’ll talk at the reunion show. I don’t see Tessa as a bad person. We both have different ways of communicating and completely different opinions. That always gets together.
Who is your favorite for the crown?
I would wish that either Gigi, Jolina, Papis or Lucas would do it.
What does she mean to you?
For me, they were the straight, real ones that I really got to know. Not that the others weren’t, but they were the ones I had the most contact with. So I would really like them
Looking back, would you do it again? I would do it again and again. It was the craziest experience of my life. But the last four days would have been enough.
